Save the hero! You're Ernesto the greatest sidekick in the Town.
The mission? Go through two levels and rescue the princess, caught in the castle by the evil minotaur boss!
Your weapons? All that you can pick and throw to help that dumb hero reach the castle alive

Two full-lenght levels and one boss fight awaits you! can you beat it?

· ARROWS: Move and Jump (you can double jump too)
· LEFT CLICK: Pick and Throw Objects (rocks, magic orbs, hero's weapons) to the mouse cursor direction
· R Key: Restart from the last checkpoint.

Some things a great sidekick has to remember:
. A stopped enemy dies by the SWORD!
· A running enemy crashs on SHIELDS
· Sometimes a sidekick need to be fast to resolve some problems.

·And there's a bug if you give an item to a standing hero, always give items if he's running! (sorry for that!)

Well good thing plants hate fire lol the character pieces are nice on this and the mechanics are pretty good some fun times on this game


fun one, messy sometimes tho, art cool, music helps and overall a nice short game

The core mechanics are good. The character models are funny. The game even has a boss - that is very good for a puzzle game.

Three things should have been improved:

1) It is a mess when two pickable things are next to each other. It's hard to pick up the right object or hero is there is little time and confined space. There seems to be that the sidekick prioritizes some things over others. This is wrong. It should be that the thing our sidekick wants to pick up is highlighted with a vague glow. And no prioritization of certain things over others - what the arrow is pointed to the most must be the thing that get's picked up.
2)Controls with arrow buttons and mouse is lame. There should have been an option to use WASD.
3) Fullscreen

Also the game could have used a bit more of a plot some intro and some ending animation or at least text. Where is the princess they were out to save as author writes it? Who got her the hero or the sidekick? I expected these answers from the ending, but there were none.

Game is overall good but its kinda hard for me to play cause im a WASD kind of guy. It feel akward for me to play using arrow keys especially because you still need to use your left hand for the mouse.
I wish you can let players to change controls.

Great grame, keep it up!
